Nancy Carrys On As I Slack

October 23, 2007


It has been 5 weeks ago since I lasted blogged. While I was off doing other things, Nancy continued everyday to draw the names of soldiers who have died in Iraq. When I last blogged, back in the warm days of September, Nancy was at NE Alberta and 25th Ave. Today she is on NE 33rd at Wilshire Park heading toward Irvington, Grant High School and the Lloyd District. Here is a map of her progress.

To date she has covered 7 and a half miles of Portland sidewalks with the names of the fallen. She has drawn 2,912 names. Over 127 people have stopped to help. Many others have given her food and drink (including Francis Restaurant) Music (Including Lloyd Allen) garden vegetables, hugs, massages, art, chalk and thank yous.
